    Patrick Swayze dies: report

    By staff writers and wires

    HOLLYWOOD actor Patrick Swayze has died after a long battle with cancer, his rep told The Associated Press. Swayze's publicist Annett Wolf says the 57-year-old actor died today with family at his side.

    The Dirty Dancing and Ghost star, who in January was told he had pancreatic cancer, has started preparing himself for death, reports say.

    "Patrick recently got word that the cancer had spread to his liver and that is what his doctors said would begin the countdown to the end," a source told National Enquirer magazine.

    My wife and I have been watching the mini-series from the mid 1980's " North and South " where Swayze played Ory Main a soldier from the South during the Civil War who befriended George Hazzard from the Northern states. He was a great actor in that mini-series and there are lots of great actresses and actors who were in that historical drama about the civil war.

    What a tragedy for him to die at 57 ! He certainly has handled his situation with dignity, class, and full of love towards his friends and family. He will be sorely missed. My wife and I have always thought he was a top rate class act. I raise my glass to Patrick Swayze tonight. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    He gave an absolutely awesome performance in "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar". And he was married to his wife for 34 years. That's something big for a Hollywood type.

    He was terrific in "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" and on SNL. He stayed happily married to his childhood sweetheart. He fought hard - sorry he didn't make it.
